The United States of Visual States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fernando Álvarez de Toledo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, infamous sell-swords, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.419 billion Hackers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of JavaCity. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient White Hatted economy, worth a remarkable 3,375 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 323,960 bitcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,766,818 per year while the poor average 30,444, a ratio of 58.0 to 1.

Women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare bitcoins, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Visual States's national animal is the python, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Visual States is ranked 506th in the world and 1st in Crassia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 26,356.03 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
